Cal Poly Finally Finds Its Journalism Chair

After a two-year search, the Liberal Arts college of California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo has announced the selection of a new chair for the journalism department: Mary Glick.

Early on in her career, Glick worked as a reporter and editor for the Daily Star Progress in LaHabra. The Daily Report in Ontario, the Pasadena Star-News and Copley Los Angeles newspapers. From there, she migrated to the teaching ranks. From the San Luis Obispo Tribune report:

Glick’s background includes former associate director of the American Press Institute in Reston, Va., and former associate professor of journalism at the State University of New York at Oswego, where she was also founder and director of the Center for Community Journalism. Prior to her SUNY appointment, Glick taught journalism at California State University Long Beach.

The Cal Poly journalism program actually lost its accreditation ten years ago. At the time, reasons cited included “high faculty turnover, inadequate equipment and buildings and lack of commitment to diversity.” Glick evidently has her work cut out for her.
